Desk Thursday

In a new phase, but feeling very comfortable here. Often, I would try something new but it was an experiment and somewhere inside I knew it was just that, playing and experimenting. These days, between cooking and cleaning , I did manage to find peace in my drawing.
I have learned:
1. to be patient and have faith.
2. to not have crushing expectations.
3. to listen.
4.to focus on what I can do to better instead of blaming.
5.to let others take responsibility for themselves.
6. to trust our good shirts won't fall apart if they stay in the freezer for more than a month...
7. to cook and bake and make my family linger at the dinner table, and laugh and be silly., particularly when instead of scalloped potatoes they had white soup...
8. that I do my best painting when I look with my inner eyes...
Many hugs...

So so true. Crushing expectations of yourself can be just that. Being in a new place can be so exciting :)
